    Shot the empty jug with .45 ACP ball and took it home as a trophy. 
    Are you going to get it mounted?
    Good idea
    Clean should have some thoughts on where she wants you to put it once you get it mounted :D
    #1 son called :'( home and asked Mon about it------wasn't pretty

    Just a jug--- did not want to put  this in the "I took a walk" thread since we are now in the discussion mode.

    I should have shot at the mosquitoes, though.

    Maybe you can catch some with chop sticks well you ventilate the next jug???

    Thanks for popping this one back up.  It was good to read BCs posts again.., 

    Nobody on here better than Big Chief was. He would help anybody any time and only wanted to get along with everyone. They don't make many like him. Only met him once but once was all it took. When you met BC you knew you'd met the best.

    Went out in the forest to shoot a jug------almost had the big one--------they cleared the trees from the dirt road that had been there since Hurricane  Florence. 

    Jug to Ned, "Dude, you're killin' me!"

    You gonna do a shoulder mount or are you doing a European Mount?

    I know a game warden at MCAS Cherry Point-------he does European mounts-----I'll go talk to him about it.

    Today I shot two rnds of critical Defense .357 mag 125 gr FTX for the fun of it.

    However, looking at the fired brass I saw a primer strike like I have never seen before. A small raised circle with a small dimple in the circle.

    What causes this------a hard primer?


  • earlyagainearlyagain Posts: 7,566 Senior Member
    Sometimes primer cups have what is called flow. Some of the cup flows into the space between the firing pin and tunnel that contains it. It can tie up the guns with hammer mounted pins. Hence the improvement of frame mounted pins. 

    I do not know if thats what you have or not.
  • NNNN Senior Member Posts: 24,925 Senior Member
    OK thanks----it was shot in a Blackhawk.

    If I had had some other ammo with me I would liked to have shot one for comparison.

    I need to take the 9mm cylinder along and try some 9mm.
  • earlyagainearlyagain Posts: 7,566 Senior Member
    I think it's most common in the 357mag cartidge when loaded hot with light bullets and spherical propellants.
  • NNNN Senior Member Posts: 24,925 Senior Member
    Went back and shot some .38 spl today and got the firing pin mark that I expected.

    Turned out it was too easy and not that dirty.


    Good for you.  I’m running behind.  I have a stack of guns to do on Sunday...😭

    Hey wrong one----that one is a .45/45 cold.

    Got cool, enough so I had to wear a light jacket when I went to the forest to hunt plastic jugs;  shot one then could not hit the broad side of a barn from inside the barn.
  • earlyagainearlyagain Posts: 7,566 Senior Member
    No doubt the weather change effected your focus.

    I recommend hot coffee and doughnuts.

    Must have been too hot or too cold.

    Air density change from hot light air to cold dense air probably made that happen. Might need to raise the rear sight to account for added bullet drop due to the air density change.  :)

    Went out to the woods to do my usual jug hunt.

    Today I decided to shoot some Winchester SZX .40 S&W defend 180 gr HP in my 10mm.
    Of course I had to use a clip to get head spacing.

    I shot the jug and got a splash and the jug remained in position on a log  with a back log support,
    with water leaking out and part of the side busted out. I could not hit the water at the bottom of the jug
    until I went closer; then the jug flipped a somersault.

    Be careful getting closer to a wounded jug. They can be dangerous

    Went out to do my usual jug shoot and on the way home I almost ran over a small corn snake laying in the dirt road in the sun. Bog turtles were on the logs in one of the beaver ponds and water was up from last nights rain slightly flooding the road again.

    I missed the jug with the last 10 mm HP in the clip and had to finish the task with 2 FMJ 10 mm.

    Good that you got out.  Areas starting to close again here

    Nothing special today except I had forgotten the recoil from a .44 mag and got re-acquainted.
